EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNESDAY, NOV. 1, 1922.
JOHNSTON LETTER.
Baptist Revival Meeting. Ra
dio Concerts. W. C. T. U.
Entertains Teachers.
Music Club Met.
On Sunday morning at the Bap
. tist church the revival services will
begin, the pastor to he assisted by
Dr. Fuller of Greenwood. The music
will be made a feature, and a special
director for singing has been secur
ed. Music is the most impressionable
of all the arts, and many a soul has
been won to Christ through the me
dium of song, or a sweet strain, and
so in all the revivals music, the song
service is made a special feature.
Dr. Fuller is considered one of the
.JJ,
j, . best evangelists in the state, and is
doing great work, being a forceful
and magnetic speaker, and everyone
that has had the privilege of hearing
him knows what to expect. There will
be two meetings a day and everyone
is cordially invited to attend.
During the week, Mr. Steely
Ouzts has been giving his friends
much pleasure by his radio, and
concerts have been heard from Pitts
burgh, Pa. Several other broadcast
zing stations were heard, but this
proved most clear, and in the an
nouncing of the program the voice
was as distinct as if it had been done
in the room. This radio was put into
operation by Mr. Ouzts, who is a
most gifted young man and he is
indeed a genius to have constructed
this.
.For several years it has been the
custom of the W. C. T. U. to enter
tain the teachers of the high school
with a reception, with the view of
getting in close touch with them, for
they are a great force in helping to
mold and train the children. Then
the W. C. T. U. is always friendly,
and extends the welcoming hand.
The policy of the W. C. T. U. is "Do
- .everything*' and*?amtmg th$ depart*?!
ments that help to promote the work
is' Scientific Temperance Instruction,
which department the teacher can
really aid in, for the temperance
truths planted in the mind of the
child through instruction and essay
work are real seeds sown. So it is
in the school, the force of teachers
that the W. C. T. U. places great
hopes, for the boy of today is the
man of tomorrow.
The reception given for the
teachers was held in the home of
Mrs. Herbert Eidson, both she and
her husband being good members
and workers. The lower floor was
ensuite, and well adapted for the oc
casion, and was artistically decorat
ed in beautiful autumn flowers.
Those assisting in receiving and di
recting the guests were Mesdames J.
W Marsh, Olin Eidson, J. A. Dobey,
J. H. White, S . J. Watson, M. W.
Crouch, Thomas Weiderman, P. B.
Waters and Miss Sara Sawyer. The
receiving line was composed of Mrs.
H. G. Eidson, Mrs. T. R. Denny and
the teachers: Misses Antoinette Den
ny, Dessie Dean, Ruby Glover, Flo
ride Hendrix, Louise Aycock, Sara
Gilliam, Veda Barre, Ella Jacobs and
Superintendent W. C. Alexander and
Prof. S. N. Lott. Mrs. M. D. Lyon,
Jr., a member of the Edgefield union
was also in the receiving line as
were the new members. After a warm
handshake by all, the following pro
gram was carried out: ',
Crusade Psalm in concert.
Prayer, Rev. David Kellar.
Greetings, Mrs. T. R. Denny, pres
ident of the W. C. T. U.
Piano duet, Misses Denny and
Barre. _
"The Importance of Temperance
in the School," by Mrs. L. C. Lati
mer.
Vocal duet, Mrs. Latimer and Mrs.
White.
Talk on Citizenship, Rev. David
Kellar.
Piano solo, Mr. Elliot Lewis.
Policy of the W. C. T. U., Miss
Zena Payne.
Chorus.
Following the program a dainty
repast was served and there was a
pleasant intermingling.
A marriage in which there was
much interest on the part of friends
here was that of Miss Marguerite
Simmons to Mr. O. B. Johnson, which
occurred last week at Warrenville.
The happy affair took place in the
church and after the ceremony the
young couple left for Spartanburg,
the home of the groom. For. the past
two years the bride has resided at
Warrenville in the home of her sis
ter, Mrs. Ftrank Kenney}, but has
ir
visited here frequently since she
left here. Heartiest congratulations
and good wishes are wafted to the
happy pair.
Rceently Mrs. Mason Burnett was
given a kitchen shower by her circle
of the Missionary society. Owing to
a bereavement in the family, the
wedding was a quiet one, and her
friends wanted to arrange this for
&er, which was all quite a surprise.
Both of these young people are very
popular, and there were several
pretty gifts sent in by the neighbors
who wanted to have a part in the
shower. This loving thoughtfulness
on the part of these friends was
greatly appreciated.
Dr. and Mrs. C. V. Smith of Ten
nille, Ga., are guests of their daught
er, Mrs. Wilmot Outs.
Dr. and Mrs. C. P. Corn are at
home from Walhalla and Greenville,
having gone to make plans for their
future home in Greenville. They ex
pect to go at an early date and their
departure is a matter of deep regret
to their friends here.
Mrs. Frank Weirs e of Charleston
and little daughter ,,are visiting in
the home of the former's father, Mr.
James Westmoreland.
According to Clemson College ex
pert, the potato curing house here
ranks with the best in the state, and
potatoes stored here last year kept
well. Space is now being rapidly tak
en up and it has been considered en
larging the plant.
Dr. Cowan, of Due West was a
visitor in the home of Mr. H. C.
Strother during the past week.
Mr. S. J. Watson had some very
fine hogs that he exhibited at the
State fair, which wsre among the
best, there.. ^^?^^^R^*^^^
Mrs. Wallace Turner entertained
the bridge club on Wednesday af
ternoon in a most delightful manner,
and two enjoyable hours were spent.
The top score was held by Miss
Gladys Sawyer and 1;he guest prize
was won by Mrs. W. C. Connerly,
both gifts being dainty card table
covers. The consolation fell to Miss
Daisy Sawyer, a hand embroidered
handkerchief. After the game, pret
tily embroidered table covers and
napkins were laid and a tempting
salad course with cofl'ee was served.
Mesdames W. J. Hatcher and Da
vid Kellar were hostesses for the
Apollo Music club which met Tues
day afternoon in the home of the
former. The club heard read a com
munication from Mrs,. J. M. Patter
son, district vice president, saying
that she and Mrs. Adam Moss would
arrive in this territory about the
20th to visit clubs. The club voted
to give $5 to the Music Scholarship
Fund, $10 having been given to the
Loan Scholarship Fund. Mrs. Joe
Cox was elected delegate to the con
ference in Fairfax. A most pleasing
program followed the business, con
sisting of a good paper, voice and
piano numbers. Sandwiches, cake and
tea were served.
The last meeting of the Emily
Geiger chapter, D. A. R., met with
Mrs. J. W. Browne. The chapter
voted to contribute to the fund for
Emigrants manuel again although
it is 100 per cent on this. Two sub
scriptions were secured for the D. A.
D. magazine, and $1'given to the
memorial tablet in Old Exchange,
Charleston. Mrs. M. T. Turner who
had recently visited the state D. A.
R. school, Tamassee, told some in
teresting things of school life and the
new building. After the program on
"Revolutionary Thanksgiving," the
hostess served hot chocolate and
cake.
Music Class Announcement.
Mrs. Leslie Kernaghan announces
that she will begin to take music pu
pils in the afternoon from now on.
She also announces that she will be
gin a Kindergarten music class for
beginners in the Froebel Method
very soon, and will give lessons every
other day in groups at 'the same price
as regular students. Mrs. Kernaghan
is especially anxious to have little
boys in this class as well as little
girls.
Miss Florence Mim s Pays'
Tribute to Work.
Dear Advertiser:
It seems as if but a few momer
have elapsed since last week wh
I was writing to you. It seems but
continuation of that . afternooi
work, and I like to write to you, e
cept that my attempt is a little sile
drama, itself a struggle to put di
ideas into clear sentences.
I attended the opening- exercis
of the Leland Powers School the ot
er day. Mrs. Powers in her openii
address said when people left a pla
they loved and returned, it seem?
to them as if they had never lei
but had always been there; and su
denly the feeling came over me th
I feel like that. Somehow it seem*
that I was a part of it all and it w;
a part of me, and that I had bi
awakened from a dream of absenc
Until then, I could not expia
what I feel when I return home ea<
year-a feeling that I have nev?
been. away. I have consciously stru;
gled to recall names and events co:
nected with places I have recent
left, but the joy of being at hon
looms large, larger than any merni
ries of past joys.
So whim I sit to write to Edgi
field, the place I love, and think m
hardest, and write, meaning well
create a certain mood of kindl
thought. When I assume again th
state of mind it seems that I wa
ever present with you in my thinkinj
ever writing letters to you, that i
their motley composition are lik
Joseph's coat of many colors.
Every person in an audience i
like a radio machine, each receptiv
to a message, and each- respondin
in his own way. My reaction tha
morning at the Leland Powei
Schocd was of appreciation of all th
things which .in the years before,.'
had accepted without consideratior
I had been accustomed to rise wit
the;o!ther^thden^
came on the platform. Perhaps some
times I did it absent mindedly, o
unconsciously, possibly even, resent
fully, at having to bother with th
courtesy. I do not remember now
but the other day I fairly spranj
from my seat.
The middle west doesn't bothe
about observing polite forms. I hai
changed since I had last seen th*
school. It was as though I had bee
through a dark tunnel, and cominj
again to the day, I welcomed it witl
thelight of appreciation in my heart
I left the school when I graduate<
not wishing to teach. I had had th<
privilege of learning much and sel
fishly would have kept it all. For
tunately I changed my mind. In giv
ing others what I had learned, '.
greatly enriched myself, and coming
back to the school, I began to knov
that until that day, I had not reallj
begun to be worthy of it.
It seem? to me that advantages
and opportunities are like any othei
worth while things that we possess
They have to be paid for, and thej
can not be paid for with money. Th?
money one spends is but the symbol
of appreciation. After one has taker
in, there must be a division of whal
has been learned with someone else.
A meal is only half a meal, unless
there is someone across the table. A
play is only half a piay, unless there
is an audience, a human element,
across the footlights, and what violin
ist does not practice in tune with the
heart beats of imaginary people to
whom he will sometime play?
The beautiful things that are
learned, and all learning is beautiful,
since it deals unmistakably with
laws, with truths and with human
experiences, are all abstract. We
take them, as it were, out of the air.
We cannot keep them, unless the ele
ment of unselfishness is present with
us, unless we are willing to come
down from the Mount of Inspiration
to the Valley of Reality, and teach
or typewrite or sing, or what not.
- A thought is only half a thought
until it goes into effect, so an educa
tion is only half an education when
it begins and ends with tht t son
who sought it for selfish ends.
And indeed, all development is
but a means of better service. Every
person may serve in his own way and
no one can absolutely for another
what service shall be. It is a
law. The idler not only loses time,
Union Meetings Have Interest
ing Programs.
! On Saturday morning at Antioch
Woman's Missionary Union of
^second division, Mrs. Prescott
jy^on, president, held a very valuable
(e?ting. There were representatievs
in Antioch, Republican, Trenton,
:d Hill, Horn's Creek, all being
(resented except Hardys and Mt.
nz
Lyon called the meeting to
and conducted the devotions.
?rs. Donald Smith presided at the
gan.
d-he first speaker was Miss Azile
offord whom the ladies of the di
ioh consideted it a great privilege
frh?ar.' There was a good number
|rmen present who also derived
nefit from what Miss Wofford
sfid. .H. .
?..At the conclusion of her talk Rev.
M:T. . Allen of Edgefield was called
.N&on and made a very fine appeal,
0key man for the 75 Million Cam
paign in Edgefield Association, for
the payment of pledges. Mr. H. H.
Sanders was appointed to take the
Kjpi* at Antioch in organizing for
the. reinforcement campaign. All the
churches throughout the South are
thorning interested in this halfway
period in beginning anew and rais
ing the money which will be such a
benediction to all the philanthropies
which Baptists are fostering.
?. Af ter the close of the addresses
Mrs. Lyon called on all the societies
present and while there were some
discouraging notes sounded, the
trend of the reports was towards re
newing courage and making a fresh
effort for the coming year. Mrs.
Lyon said that every meeting of
their society was an inspiration even
if but-? few were present. Mrs. 0. J.
Holmes made the Red .Hill report
and strfssed the work in personal
seiH&:-e,: visiting.'the sick and.giving.
abie to' ?ccompf?srnTarsTT^
mond, of Republican said that they
were taking on new enthusiasm in
view of the fact that the 20th anni
versary and the endingj of the pe
riod of the 75 Million Campaign will
be completed and the celebration
held at Republican in 1924. In order
to take an enthusiastic and success
ful part in the anniversary, societies
must begin now as the task is a
large one.
Trenton was represented by Mrs.
|T. P. ??alter who reported a Girls'
Auxiliary and Royal Ambassador
chapter organized. In the revival
meeting under the leadership of the
Trenton church, twenty-five young
people were converted and the Wo
man's Mission Society took cogni
zance of this at once to direct their
energies in the right direction.
Mrs. S. B. Mays spoke for Horn's
Creek, which we hope will soon have
a pastor and renewed interest in the
society. Reports were made from the
Red Hill Y. W. A. by Miss Holmes,
the Republican Sunbeams by Mrs.
Wiley Wells and little Miss Miller,
whom Mrs. Tillman said made the
best report of all, and Antioch by
Mrs. Lyon.
Mrs. J. L. Mims urged the plan
of holding the missionary meetings
in the homes during the winter
months and making the meetings as
attractive as possible. Miss Wolford
suggested, as has been successfully
tried in Laurens county, that all the
various jrrades of societies meet in
the homes, and each take lunch and
spend the day, the hostess perhaps
furnishing the coffee, and in the
morning holding the mission society
but that more precious thing, the
satisfaction of work well done. I am
glad that I have worked, glad that I
am preparing myself for more work,
better service. No one can live in the
highest sense without doing some
thing, and happy is the man who
finds duty and pleasure one and the
same thing.
Surely Heaven will be but a con
tinuation of labor. The soul that has
striven so long on earth will not dily
sit and hear the seraph song, but
if it does, I rather think it will be
at the end of stated periods of char
acter building in that long, glad day
that never ends.

meeting and a chapter of the mis
sion study class, and in the after
noon doing any sewing for the sick
or needy of the community, making
quilts for- the orphanage, or doing
any personal service work. Several
societies expressed appreciation of
this plan, and when it is tried, send
an account of it to the superintend
ent. Arrangements can be made for
the children occupying a separate
room and the Sunbeam leader or
someone else can hold the meeting
and tell stories- for the entertain
ment of the children. This plan
would be splendid for the winter
months.
Mrs. A. T. Allen was called upon
as the Y. W. A. leader in the asso-.
ciation and urged the organization
of societies in every church and es
pecial attention to m?ilssion ?t?dy
and the standing of examinations.
Any who have had mission study
classes and still have a 'book in the
community may get the questions
now from Mrs. J. A. Clarkson, Gaff
ney, S. C. These questions can be
answered with the book opened and
will entitle the one who stands this
examination to ? certificate.
Mrs. Mamie N .Tillman talked to
th e leaders on the importance of
the Sunbeam work, and interviewed
all leaders of each church with a
view to more intensive work for the
coming year.
At the dinner hour there was a de
lightful social time when the good
friends of the W. M. U. could get
